Introduction

Since its foundation in 1986, the Kimchi Museum has displayed historical relics related to kimchi, different types of kimchi, mock-ups of kimchi-making processes, and information about the efficacy derived from the kimchi fermentation process. Visitors will learn about the origin and history of kimchi through historical books, paintings, and writings. Various types of kimchi crocks, along with traditional kitchen utensils that were used to prepare it will also be introduced. Various models show specific types of kimchi that were developed in regions all over Korea. The Kimchi Museum has reference rooms, kimchi-tasting rooms (two different kinds of kimchi each month), and a store where visitors can purchase quality kimchi. Nearby attractions that are worth visiting, are COEX (Convention & Exhibition Center) and the COEX Aquarium, the Korea World Trade Center Observatory, and Bongeunsa Temple.
